A DUP MP whose office landlord wrongly received £10,000 in Covid funding has said the money has now been repaid in full.

It emerged over the weekend that the grant was paid out to Cinq Properties, which owns Paul Girvan's constituency office in Ballyclare.

Mr Girvan told the Belfast Telegraph the money had been repaid on Friday and that he had contacted the company last week as news of the overpayments emerged.
